all over again." senate majority leader harry reid summed up neatly the next debate on the role of government when addressing tuesday's release of house republican paul ryan's budget. called the path to prosperity, as it was when he first unveiled it, wearing nearly the same suit and tie back in 2011, ryan's plan seeks to reduce taxes and cut government spending. "when they talk about a cut, they're talking about reducing the rate of growth. and that's all ryan's plan will do. i think it's too weak. i think it's not good enough." author of "the free market revolution," yaron brook's criticism of the ryan plan is one you may not have heard before. it is far more likely that you've already listened to a version of this attack from the left. "the ryan plan will shower more tax breaks on millionaires and tilt the playing field to the advantage of big corporate interests" ryan's plan would cut the top tax bracket from 39 to 25 percent and would reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 to 25 percent. it also seeks to slash spending on entitlements like medicare, medicaid and social secu
be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at

to jack johnson. senator harry reid who hustled his way around nevada boxing rings before going to law school and getting into politics, joined with senator john mccain, massachusetts senator mo count, and peter king to introduce a resolution to pardon jack johnson. jack johnson was a legendary competitor that defined an era of american boxing and raised the war for all american athletics, said senator reid. his memory was unjustly tarnished, and it is time to recast his legacy. senator john mccain said we can never completely right the wrong perpetrated against jack johnson during his lifetime, but this pardon is a small, meaningful step toward acknowledging his mistreatment before the law and celebrating his legacy of athletic greatness and historical significance. senator cowan said jack johnson was one of the great african-american athletes, his skill and perseverance to get back up every time he was knocked down made him a champion in the eyes of the sports world and for those that like him pursued their dreams despite racial in tolerance. jack king said he is a trail blazer and l
